Vitorian Eneko Llanos is taking advantage of the benevolent climate of the island of Lanzarote to pick up pace for the new season, which highlights the Spanish Winter Triathlon Championship (Reinosa, January 29), where last year he achieved the second place; and the Abu Dhabi triathlon, on March 12, in which he was proclaimed champion.
"Little by little I have been getting sensations during the first bars of the season, finding myself getting a little better, first on the bike, then in the water and finally in the running race," said Eneko on his website.
The Alava has completed this last week a training that, although it has not been of large volumes, it has been intense and profitable for him. "In the water I am already doing quite well, doing pool times of 25 in pool of 50. Some series of 100 below 1'10". There have been a total of six days of water, hovering around 3.000-4.000 meters in almost all of them, "he explained.
Llanos is also working on his road BH G5, making "long taxiings", with averages "almost always above 30 kilometers per hour", something that in Lanzarote, "with the wind and the unevenness of the roads" are " acceptable averages, ”he said.
Lastly, the Alavés have confirmed their improvement in foot training. «In the race is where I have met again this week. After some heavy starts I am more loose and fluid. Running still little, four days without passing the hour and a half and putting in a short series to catch a little spark. The key is being work in the gym, "he concluded.
